running executable files in linux
I recently got the information that Windows software do not run in Linux as such.
In order to run these software(Running the software also includes installing the software by running the set-up executable file) I need to install 'wine' on my system and then run the set-up files from within this 'wine'.
I therefore wish to install 'wine' on my system in order to run the corresponding Windows set-up files(which are executable files).
Please help me with the procedure involved in installing 'wine' and the procedures that follow it.
Also help me with the source of this 'wine' program(any website if possible).
Currently I am running Linux Mint version 10 on my system.
